the medsiri guide to 

Exercise

Change how you move. 

A collection of some of the best content on exercise and fitness.

The positive impact of regular physical activity on the mind and body is unparalleled.  If its effects were available as a pill, it would be priceless.  How much would something with such a sweeping list of benefits be worth to you?

A great book makes an impression that sticks with us.  It is a source that is always on hand that you can reference often. >

The Joy of Movement

A key to adding more movement into your life is to view it more than just a weight loss mechanism.  By changing the framework with which we view exercise, we will be inclined to be more active.  Kelly McGonigal's book is a great place to start. 

 
"The neurobiological effects of physical exercise are numerous and involve a wide range of interrelated effects on brain structure, brain function, and cognition.  A large body of research in humans has demonstrated that consistent aerobic exercise induces persistent improvements in certain cognitive functions, healthy alterations in gene expression in the brain, and beneficial forms of neuroplasticity and behavioral plasticity; some of these long-term effects include: increased neuron growth, increased neurological activity, improved stress coping, enhanced cognitive control of behavior, improved declarative, spatial, and working memory, and structural and functional improvements in brain structures and pathways associated with cognitive control and memory. The effects of exercise on cognition have important implications for improving academic performance in children and college students, improving adult productivity, preserving cognitive function in old age, preventing or treating certain neurological disorders, and improving overall quality of life."
